their country, f.b.i. agents, civilians that work for the defense department will see their hows cut and they're paychecks reduced. the longer these cuts remain in place the greater the damage. economists estimate it could cost us more than $750,000. here's the thing, none of this is necessary. it is happening because republicans in congress chose this outcome overclosing a single wasteful tax loophole that helps to reduce the deficit. they decided that tax break for the wealth off and well-connected is more important than protecting our middle-class families and military families from these cuts. i think we can combine smart spending cuts and changes to the tax code that makes it more fair without raising anyone's taxes. that's how we can reduce our deficit without laying off workers. i don't think that is too much to ask. it is the kind of approach i proposed for two years now. a majority of the american people agree with me, including a majority of republicans. we just need republicans in congress to catch up with the their own party and the rest of the country. i know there are republican

, my last year as secretary of defense, i met one morning intelligence briefing at 7 o'clock along with general charlie. the previous day general hughes had briefed us that the chinese military were to begin extensive military maneuvers in the taiwan strait. this morning we were stunned to learn that they had fired two missiles that landed just 10 miles off the coast of taiwan. the taiwanese had a presidential election underway, and the chinese were using a not too subtle way of explaining to them what they wanted the outcome of that election to be. thises was an unacceptable form of military coercion and both the general and i agreed that a strong response was needed by the united states, something more than a diplomatic letter of protest. after some discussion we agreed to send two carrier battle groups to taiwan. within an hour the president had approved our recommendation and before the day was over, though carrier battle groups were underway steaming to taiwan. at a press conference the next day, i was asked would i not fear this would lead to military clash with china. i said

to programs such as education, research and defense. this is balance. in principle, optimal fiscal policy would weigh the very small cost to the economy of reducing loopholes in the tax code such as the carried interest provision against the rather significant benefits foregone from cutting programs like head start, research by the national institute of health, border security and other government functions as well as entitlement reform. balance means that we do some of each. can anyone believe that it is less distortionary to preserve every loophole in the tax code in order to cut more deeply the number of children who can go to head start or the amount of research that n.i.h. can conduct in i don't think -- that the n.i.h. can conduct. compare this approach to the alternative which says that all of deficit reduction must occur from reductions in government programs. and that not a dollar more would be raised from closing tax loopholes. does anyone believe that on the margin, it is more costly to trim back one dime of the trillions of dollars in deductions and loopholes that mar the tax
